PIX is a hybrid magazine/book. It is dedicated to the art of cinema and its relation to the other arts. PIX questions national and cultural boundaries, both in its coverage and contributors, film-makers, art and film historians, musicians, photographers, painters, poets and ’Pataphysicians.
There have been three issues to date, a fourth is in preparation. We are not governed by fixed timetables or standard formats. Our design and structure fosters the pursuit of links and coincidences in a counterpoint of text and images. PIX seeks to view experimental, avant-garde, documentary and narrative cinemas within the same context, to uncover the highways and byways of film exhibition, and to facilitate an understanding of cinema as part of our social-cultural lives.
